in thread Perl tk - open file and print content
SO i try to install it manually getting this error massage: Net::CUPS Configuration Running cups-config ... failed. Net::CUPS requires the Common Unix Printing System. Check your system configuration and then attempt the configure process again. (i have perl v5.10.1 on Ubuntu) Can anyone help me please ? i'm going crazy !
On Ubuntu, you should first use the apt-get or Synaptics Package Manager to install Perl modules. Why? Because Ubuntu often has many dependencies, that are required before installation. I would look thru your menu, and find Synaptic's Package Manager, run it and search for "perl Net::Cups", then install all the dependencies.
Also, unless you have the latest Perl version 14.x installed, the Perl that comes with
Ubuntu is older, around version 10 or 12, and the latest Net::Cups may not work at those Perl version levels. You may need an earlier release of the Net::CUPS module to be compatible. See Cups on Ubuntu
